 The Law of Nationality

According to Article 30 of the Mexican Constitution, “Mexican nationality is acquired by birth or by naturalization.”

 MEXICANS BY BIRTH ARE: 

·        “Those that are born in the territory of the Republic, whatever the nationality of their parents.”

·        “Those born outside Mexican territory of one or both parents that were born in Mexico. “

·        “Anyone born outside of Mexico of one or both parents that are naturalized Mexicans”

·        “Those born on board Mexican ships or aircraft.”

This means that anyone born in Mexico has Mexican nationality by the simple act of being born in Mexican territory. Anyone who has one  or both parents born in Mexico is a Mexican national. There is a simple procedure for verifying this nationality. Anyone born in the U.S. that has at least one Mexican parent has dual nationality in Mexico.

According to Art. 37 of the Constitution, a Mexican cannot lose his nationality. This is part of the reforms of 1998 that permit dual nationality. Anyone that renounced his Mexican nationality to acquire another nationality can recover it, because he no longer can lose it.
